Question: What's the proper way for a host-app to link to libSwell.so (linux)? Host-app's modules (.so) should be able to consume swell api by using SWELL_PROVIDED_BY_APP and swell-modstub-generic.o.

Question: REAPER has two developers (you & Schwa), right? Why don't you hire more developers, like 10 developers? So that it won't be too much load for you two? We don't mind having the discounted price increased from $60 to $80 or 100.

Question: I was wondering if there is a swell function for createpipe when using createprocess so the stdout, stderr, could be redirected to an edit control to read the output in real time, or could it even be added? Here's a sample snippet link that I got working on windows. Was wondering how I could do this on Mac, if possible? pastiebin.com/5d598085afe2dThanks, Wyatt

    For macOS there is SWELL_CreateProcessIO()/SWELL_ReadWriteProcessIO() which you can use (or steal). (I know you didn't ask, but for linux -- pipe()/fork()/close()/dup2()/execvp()/fcntl/etc... a small pain but not too bad, let me know if you want some sample code).
Question: Can you also put REAPER Blog (tutorial) videos in your website in organized way, just like Kenny's videos are there? Because, looking for random tutorial videos in your website is much better than searching on YouTube actually.
